This Day In History: 1962-03-01
The Fyke Nature Association was conducting a bird feeder watch program. All persons who maintained feeders were asked to keep a record of what came to the feeders daily. These reports were to be turned in to neighborhood field workers who would collate and turn in the information to a central listing monthly. The purpose was to monitor changes in the winter bird population in this area. Among the local people who had agreed to be field workers were Mr. and Mrs. Donald Storing of Valley Road, Mahwah, Mr. and Mrs. John Douglas McKechnie of Hillburn and Mrs. Henry L. Carson and Mrs. Thomas Wright of Ramsey.
